We've been beta testing takeshape for use as a CMS for thegymnasium.com on our twitch livestream. It's been a fantastic product to use, and the learning experience has been wonderful. Even as someone with limited exposure to GraphQL, I had no problem picking this up and running with it.

Pros:

Super easy to use! We went from 0 experience to a CMS Proof of Concept in under an hour!

Cons:

Some dev experience required

TakeShape is a great tool for rapidly testing out new ideas, figuring out what works, and continuing to iterate.

We've been building massivesci.com with TakeShape for the last year and a half—it was a great choice. We've been able to develop and deploy a robust static publication with a fairly complex schema at very small cost. The ability to create and update content types has allowed us to rapidly test new features and designs with limited overhead.

Pros:

Fast and easy to prototype and iterate new product features; no database maintenence required; GraphQL endpoints allow for future growth

Cons:

Developer experience required
